I have been involved in several projects to support gender inclusion in science, as well as encouraging more young people to study science and engineering. I won the Institute of Physics (IOP) Early Career Communicator Prize (2015), “I’m a Scientist, Get Me Out of Here!” (2015), the IOP Jocelyn Bell Burnell Award (2016), the IOM3's 'Robert Perrin Award' (2017) and the Imperial College Dame Julia Higgins Certificate (2017). I sit on the committees of the IOP’s Women in Physics Group, Physics Communicators Group and London & South East Branch. I am also on the council of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) and Women in Science & Engineering (WISE) Young Women’s Board. This year I was the UK representative on a US State Department International Visitor Leadership Program, travelling across America for a month looking at initiatives to recruit and retain women in ‘STEM’. I also co-led the UK Team at the International Conference for Women in Physics.
